Why Use Books, eBooks & Documentaries (Videos)?

Books and ebooks are a good source for background and history on a topic: the who, what, where when and why. They are geared for non-experts, so they're a great place to start the research process. You will need to use at least one book or ebook and one Documentary or Academic Video (find in Films on Demand) as a source for the Research Project.

Strategies for Finding Relevant Resources

Having trouble finding resources on your chosen artwork or artist? Try the following:

  • Search for other works done by the artist. 
  • Search for similar works and artists from the same period and region.
  • Look for information on the original site and location of the work (like a church or city).
  • Search for information on the original patrons and audiences for the work.
  • Search for background on the region where the artwork created such as beliefs, ways of life or customs, other social/political characteristics.
